"Free speech?" Yea, like /u/BlackFlagged said, it's kind of a misleading term, but I think I'll keep using it (it's what everyone recognizes, after all).
I support free speech for the most part-- but when it comes to people in power spouting out objective and clear falsehoods (with likelyhood that they intended to decieve), I think they should be jailed or very heavily fined.
For hate-speech, let the people take care of that (so as to avoid a state censoring speech that isn't quite so hateful), like Antifa. Although, perhaps with the right restrictions, law against hate-speech could be good.

What qualifies you as an authority?

I don't believe in authority so that's a silly question. Direct action or nothing.

So you define hate simply because you can. There are no rules, because there should be no authority. By this a fascist can and should maim or rape you as he pleases as long as he is mightier than you.
